About Parent Carer Foundation

Parent Carer Foundation provides a central voice for Parents and Carers of children and young adults with SEN / complex learning / medical needs and disabilities. The Foundation monitors and helps shape participation and awareness with Parents.

We have influenced and shaped current and future service provision for families. We have raised awareness about Parents’ real concerns with a collective voice. The Foundation will also signpost Parents and Carers regarding health, education, social services and other agencies in and around Bournemouth.

“Coffee meet and greets have been a life saver for me as I was thinking I was the only one with a child who had complex needs.”

The Parent Carer Foundation gathers information from Parent/Carers and Professionals and using these unique shared experiences will help to shape the development and delivery of services to our children and young people.

The Foundation takes part in many consultations and participation work and shares this information with Bournemouth (Poole, Dorset and surrounding areas)  families via newsletters, information events and social media, to enable Parents, Carers and young people gain greater knowledge and understanding of the services that are available. These may be delivered by health, education, specialist provision, advocacy services, local authority and/or the voluntary sector.

The Foundation welcomes Parents, Carers and young people who want to understand more about the available services and their potential impact on children and young adults, so please come and join our successful Foundation.




PCF continues to work with health, education, social care i.e. CHAD and Adult services, and various other organisations / agencies.
